Husband arrested in murder of woman who boasted financial success on Facebook
A Florida man was arrested for the death of his wife one day after she took to social media to brag about her finances.
Makeva Jenkins, 33, was shot and killed by a masked man on June 29. She reportedly opened her door to the attacker and was shot down, later dying in the hospital that same day.
Just one day before her murder, the mother of three took to Facebook to marvel at the success of her business, The Prime Enterprise Group, which helps small business owners. In her post, she wrote that she was “in awe of how far” she had come.
“We overcame being homeless in 2013/2014 to reaching my six figure mark in 2015 to now making multi six figures,” she wrote. “No matter what the road looked like, I followed my heart and stuck with it growing my business.”
Her husband, Euri Jenkins, 31, insisted that he had nothing to do with her murder.
However, according to the Sun Sentinel, Palm Beach County Sheriff’s deputies assigned to the U.S. Marshals Service arrested him and charged him with first-degree murder.
‘We have no idea about her husband’
Initially, police believed that Makeva was the victim of a home invasion. The suspect got away in the family’s white Dodge Charger, which they found a mile away from the scene.
In a desperate plea for information, the family held a news conference in August, but Euri didn’t go.
“We have no idea about her husband or where he is or what’s going on with that,” her grandmother, Gloria Herald told reporters.
In early September, police arrested Joevan Joseph, now 20, and charged him with first-degree murder.
Now, with Euri’s arrest, police have not offered any information on any possible link between him and Joseph. They have also not given any information on motive for the murder.
